Here at the HMICFRS, we assess the effectiveness and efficiency of police forces and fire and rescue services. Independent of government and the services we inspect, we ask the questions the public wish to have answered, and produce major reports which shine a light on a wide range of issues. Join us, and you’ll have the opportunity to make a real difference to the quality of local services and the lives of the general public. We’re a unique organisation with staff seconded or loaned from across the civil service, police forces and fire and rescue services. We’re also a rewarding place to work, and take great pride in the quality of work we achieve and the opportunities we create for our staff.
About the role
Join us as a Senior Data Engineer, and you’ll work as a key member of the Data Services Science community. This group sets the scope of data engineering work through user research and data pipelines, and operates alongside strategic leads and operation teams within HMICFRS as well as staff in the inspected bodies, the Home Office and contractors. It’ll be your task to identify, design and lead the implementation of complex data flows to connect operational systems, data for analytics and BI systems.
Sharing your work with product owners to identify strategies that enable the service to support business needs, you’ll operate with the Data Engineering community to set the direction of the service technology and data architecture. We’ll also expect you to mentor junior members of the team, promote challenge and collaboration, and encourage an agile approach to their tasks. This is a high profile role, and your work will be key to the successful delivery of the high quality analysis, insights and visualisations that will meet government priorities to reduce crime and improve police performance.
As a DDaT badged professional, to be a success in this role, you’ll be passionate about data and have practical experience of using Power BI to deliver projects in data analysis, solution design and end user reporting. This experience should include the use of the Power BI service and admin portal as well as an understanding of SQL and IT programming and automation. We’ll also look for the ability to develop complex Power Bi reports using DAX and/or Power Query/M, and the skills to use industry standard ETL tools, network databases and scheduling and orchestration tools such as SharePoint.
Proficient in the use of open source programming languages in order to deliver data development and engineering products, you should also be capable of using Cloud data technologies, solutions and strategies using Azure AD and Admin Centre. Committed to working with other users to map processes and develop digital products, your superb engagement skills will allow you to manage and communicate with non-technical and senior stakeholders about performance, analysis and effective solutions to any problems that arise.
In addition to an excellent salary and Civil Service pension, we’re committed to investing in our people and providing them with great opportunities to maximise their skills and achieve their potential. We offer a wide range of work-based training and development, including access to coaching and mentoring, and five days volunteering per year.
The diversity of our people is a real asset to HMICFRS. We’re committed to creating a welcoming, inclusive workplace where everyone is able to bring their whole selves to work and perform at their best. We particularly welcome applications from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic candidates and people with disabilities, as they are currently under-represented at this grade level. Appointments will be made on merit on the basis of fair and open competition. If you want to find out more about our work, please visit www.justiceinspectorates.gov.uk/hmicfrs/
